Never was a cloudy day in September…so we hope! Pastor Doug and I are excited about our plans for Sundays over the next four weeks. There are two items we’d like you to place on your calendar and plan to attend as you are able.
First, we will be meeting together in the parking lot for worship services 9:30-10:30am every Sunday in September weather permitting. If you attended the most recent service, you have a good idea of what to expect. Pastor Doug will be leading us through the Life of Jonah in his most recent sermon series. Consider bringing a friend or two. People are more open to getting out of the house right now creating a perfect opportunity for us to invite them to a worship service.
Second, we will begin offering one in-person discipleship class inside the church! The class will meet each Sunday in September from 10:45-11:45am. It will be limited to 50 people (ages 13+). We will follow protocols to keep us safe as Larry Annes leads our discussion. Here is an excerpt of the class offering:
“Few pastors or Christian writers have dared to approach the subject of how proper eating and an active lifestyle can affect how we serve God. Author Gary Thomas does just that. And he reaches all the way back to the apostle Paul, who wrote that we need to prime our bodies to become, "an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work." – Promo from “Every Body Matters” book that we will utilize as our main resource.
We hope you’ll consider joining us this Sunday and staying for the class. We do need to know if you are planning to attend the class so we can make a decision on which room to use. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know of your interest.
If you cannot attend the worship service, please join us online as we live-stream via YouTube. Go to the church website (www.parksidefellowship.org) and then click either “Streaming on YouTube” or “Streaming on Facebook.”
“One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things.”- Philippians 3:13–15
